Rush Week (1989)

Welcome to Rush Week, all you frat boys and sorority girls!  I’m guessing if you are in college, you’re probably charting out which Greek organizations you want to join, based mostly on exactly which houses and which people will help you get a leg up in life later in business, social status, or even politics…

Or you are just judging it based on your class, one of your parent’s memberships, how much beer is in the house’s multiple kegs at any one time, or which house will help you score with the hotness in that sorority with all the hotness.

Maybe you’re like me and never part of a frat or sorority.  You’re living vicariously through movies from the 80s, like Rush Week or Revenge of the Nerds.  Maybe you were in a frat, but a loser one like Revenge of the Nerds.  Or you were part of a sorority, but mostly just, I dunno…  Didn’t do sexy nightie sleepovers or do constant lingerie fashion shows on a nightly basis.  The point I’m trying to make is – I know women.

Prime Evil (1988)

It’s been a bit since I covered a movie from our friends at Vinegar Syndrome.  So, let’s solve that with some good ol’ fashioned exploitation sleaze!

This week’s movie, Prime Evil, comes to us from director Roberta Findlay.  In fact, this is part of a two-movie set from Vinegar Syndrome.  The other movie, Lurkers, also comes from 1988 which also marks near the end of her directing career.  Findlay is still alive today despite finishing her movie making career over 30 years ago.  Interestingly enough, she really got her start in making adult films before getting into exploitation.  Her first film, Take Me Naked, was made under the pseudonym Anna Riva when she was only 18 years old!

From the late 60s through the 70s and into the mid 80s, Findlay worked mostly in adult films, though she’d often team up with her husband in the 70s, Michael Findlay, for some more sleazy exploitation flicks like Snuff, a movie actually marketed as a for real snuff flick.  I’m not sure you can get much sleazier than that.

The Clones of Bruce Lee (1980)

Here’s a first for B-Movie Enema…  I’ve been personally asked to cover a movie.  More on that shortly.

I’m returning to the realm of Bruceploitation with The Clones of Bruce Lee from 1980.  Now…  I was burned previously, but I have a good feeling about this one.  I mean take a look at the trailer!  It’s got a whole mess of Bruce Lee wannabes.  Heh…  Say that out loud – “Bruce Lee wannabe”.  It’s fun.

Sigh…  I do have fun.

Anyway, I’m getting distracted.  Let me get back on track here.  Much like all other Bruceploitation flicks, this centers heavily around the tragic, real life death of Bruce Lee in 1973.  After he died, science did some stuff and now there’s a trio of Bruces to fuck up the world… because… erm… SCIENCE!

Slave Girls from Beyond Infinity (1987)

Here’s a recipe for a B-Movie Enema feature:  One part The Most Dangerous Game, two parts 80s, a couple bimbos, one whole Charles Band, and a whole heapin’ helpin’ of silly sci-fi.  This is what Slave Girls from Beyond Infinity are made of.

And I’m gonna tell you all about it this week!

First off, I want to admit that the title definitely caught my eye, though I’m sure I’ve heard of this before.  Full Moon Direct often has lots of sales on their website.  It’s why you’ve seen me cover more from Band’s company over the past couple months.  What’s great is that I have more to come too!  But another thing I definitely appreciate about this movie is that it isn’t horsin’ around.  It’s 74 minutes, wham, bam, thank  you, ma’am.

The Devil’s Honey (1986)

Lucio Fulci…  He’s one of those Italian filmmakers that people usually will have strong opinions about.  I’m not sure if I know anyone who is just okay with his works.  He’s kind of an all or nothing type of director.  That’s not to say if you fall on the “all in” side of the fence with him you have to love every one of his movies, god knows Demonia is a real chore to get through, but you’ll likely be more than happy to watch something with his name on it just because it has his name on it.

I’ve talked about the aforementioned Demonia, Zombie, and Zombie 3(*) which all fall squarely in the horror genre.  For a guy who has dabbled in just about every genre, I feel like I owe it to him to try as many of those dabbles as possible.  With that said, let’s just dive right into his foray into the erotic thriller world with The Devil’s Honey.

Angel 4: Undercover (1994)

Previously on B-Movie Enema…

Wait…  Oh no…

What the fuck is this shit?

No…  I…  The “Angel Collection” came with only THREE movies…  Wh-what is this?

Oh god no…

And now…  B-Movie Enema’s 175th article, Angel 4: Undercover. Continue reading “Angel 4: Undercover (1994)”

Demons 2 (1986)

Strap in, kids!  It’s time to go back to Italy for some good ol’ fashioned, bonkers, what-the-fuck-did-I-just-watch horror.  Back in October, I covered Demons from 1985.  Turns out that movie became a little hit and got fans of its own all across the world.  So, just one year later, a sequel had to happen.

And, so…  It’s time to take a look at Demons 2!

Generally, I’d be a little concerned about a quick turnaround for a sequel.  Shit.  The second movie was literally released one year later in the same week as the first.  I’ve mentioned it before with Zombie how quickly that was shot and released – the film was released within 3 calendar months of production beginning.  So I know the Italians have it in them to just crank this shit out like it’s a goddamn factory owned by Henry Ford.  Also, I kind of can’t totally throw this movie into the garbage pile straight away because Dario Argento is still producing and Lamberto Bava is directing.

The Toolbox Murders (1978)

Bit by bit by bit… He carved a nightmare!

That’s what the promotional materials said to sell this week’s featured B-Movie Enema movie, The Toolbox Murders.  It was also marketed as a dramatization of a true crime spree perpetrated by a serial killer.  Think of it like what Tobe Hooper did with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.  In fact, scratch that…  This movie is directly connected with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre in a much more direct way.

It’s not like anyone making The Toolbox Murders were associated with TCM.  Oh no…  This is classic exploitation sleaze that will forever connect these two movies.   You see, producer Tony Didio noticed that a second release of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre in 1977 was particularly successful.  So, he decided he wanted in on that.  He showed the movie to his writers and told them one simple thing:

“Gimme something exactly like that chainsaw movie.” Continue reading “The Toolbox Murders (1978)”
